You’ll Sing Once More (The Sound Of Music) - Standard Limited Edition

Mark Davies British Artist

  • The original film plot and my concept are all about hope and freedom through courage and faith, to embrace the smallest of things to find happiness and to rebel against restriction. The underlying concept in this piece is one that embraces all of this and shines light on a person’s hope that someone that they know and love can find freedom after restriction, be it in this life or their next. The title of the piece ‘You’ll Sing Once More’ is one that is like a silent statement that you would say that that person, one that you convey to them without the need for saying anything at all.

    When this sentiment is conveyed I feel that it elevates this piece to a much higher state as the character in view takes on something so special to so many. I set about with the aim that this sense of freedom could touch many and in a number of ways, it can simply evoke that great feeling you get from being completely absorbed in music and free from reality, something that I embrace and need whilst creating my artworks.  

    This piece is an abstract take on the iconic Salzburg countryside with its mountainous backdrop and dandelion covered grasses, a number of textures have been created and integrated to form an engaging backdrop that has a painted quality to it that is full of movement and light. As with other pieces that I have created I have depicted the lead character as a spirit-like silhouette that is formed by sweeping lines that symbolise the staves from a line of music along with music notes and bokeh whilst subtle areas of the body have been blurred to give off the sense of movement and ultimately freedom.

    In line with this sense of setting a spirit set free I wanted to portray time passing so rather than show the classic yellow dandelion flowers I have moved the season on to show them in their white seed headed state where they are taken up with the wind into the sky and interacting with the character.

    This I hope strengthens this lovely sense of being free, the soul being released from the body and taken up to create something new and beautiful, maybe something that can only be seen just for that split second when the sunlight breaks through. A further reflection of this wonderful sense of freedom and flight is shown through the subtle butterflies that are attracted to the figure and to the freedom and good that radiates from it.
